Flashing your headlights just makes him go faster. This i know from personal experience!
I admire his courage to drive down to Manipal everyday from Mangalore in such a crater filled NH17. No wonder he took off after Suratkal with the kind of frustrating drive he must have had till Suratkal. .

OT: It was bliss to travel in this NH 17 way back in late 90's during my engineering days in Manipal. 40 Mins flat was the time taken by express buses (not all, it was Ganesh, SRKT, Perriera, and Anand) from Suratkal to Manipal. What a thrill drive we used to have.

Default OMR Sighting

I spotted a white Zen KL-01-XXXX with LTD sticker on the rear bumper in OMR near Thoraipakkam.

It was parked in front of a tea shop at around 8:30 PM. Who was it.

Yes, you are correct. Trivandrum is my home town. As i am working at cochin, i will be at trivandrum on weekends only. I am extremely happy to wave hands at trivandrum bhpians too. Dont mind if i am waving hands from a autorkishaw because of the excitement of seeing a bhpian, because some times my 4 wheels will be at cochin.

White M&M Bolero spotted in the parking next to Supervalu at Embassy Golf Links Business Park, Bangalore. My office is in the same building, would be great to know a fellow-BHPian at work-place.

Any BHPian from banagalore, if they find the stickers on Matiz/Pulsar bike then you can stop me and we can get introduced(just for 2-3 mins if you are free) or have a cutting chai(if interested)

Hi Shishir. I am from Bangalore. I do not yet sport a TeamBHP sticker. Will definitely keep a look out for your Matiz/Pulsar. I ride a Bullet classic and her name is SQUAW, you can't miss it

"Gooney" you can always purchase the stickers(go to the first page of this thread and see the links) and my drive 80% of the time(on weekdays) will be on the ORR in bangalore(from sarjapur to Hebbal) and occasinally inside the city also.

Spotted a red Getz CRDi with "Live to drive sticker" on right side rear bumper. It also had small Team BHP.com stickers on rear windshield and on the left side of rear bumper. Spotted it near Hotel Chalukya signal (near Vidhana Soudha). Who is it?
I was right behind your car and also flashed the headlights and honked consistently. I was in a black Ford Fiesta. This was around 5.30 PM today
